Q&A: Dec. 11

Question: One of my friends got a call from their spouse saying 24 was in town filming in Uptown this morning (Mon., Dec. 11). Have you heard anything about that? Is Jack Bauer going to save Dallas this season?
Chip Kelley

Answer: Scott Grogin, Fox's senior vice president of corporate communications, checked this out and said there's nothing to report on 24.
"We're not filming in Dallas," he said via email. "Sorry."

Question: I am a big fan of Friday Night Lights. I enjoy the way (executive producer/director) Peter Berg handles things. Are the ratings up? Do you think it will return next season?
Bart Long

Answer: Friday Night Lights continues to struggle in the Nielsens, but NBC commendably has picked it up for a full run this season. And the series will be moving to Wednesdays (7 p.m. central) on Jan. 10.

Recently named one of this year's Top 10 TV series by the American Film Institute, Lights currently ranks 82nd in total viewers, averaging 6.1 million a week. It's doing a bit better with advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds, where it's 74th with an average of 3.2 million viewers in that age group.

Right now I'd say it's a long shot to come back next season. Then again, I didn't think it would even get this far. NBC, to its credit, is doing everything it can to save the show. Now it's up to viewers, and even minimal gains in audience will appreciably help its chances.
